360 Vodka

i am/was a confirmed gin martini drinker. I decided to venture into the vodka dark side of martini drinkers.Since there's not a lot of of ingredients, the vodka makes the drink. I sampled many varieties over the past year, and 360 has become my go-to brand. If only I could find a use for the double chocolate sampler bottles I've accumulated.

Absolut

I hate it. My complaint isn't so much that it burns (which it does, don't get me wrong) but more so that it just tastes terrible. Very bitter, and not in a good way. It's okay in some mixed drinks, I've uses it for White Russians, and when the kahlua and heavy cream overpower the Absolut Vodka it's okay.

Banff Ice

Worst hangover imaginable. I was wiped out for 36 hours. Stick with Stolichnaya.
Reviewer: Kris | Review this vodka

Koskenkorva

I find the suggested cocktail recipe to be very elaborate. If you're spending $25 on vodka, you're not going to have Mandarin Liquour. Very poor marketing.

ZYR

It just doesn't get any better for everyday consumption or special events. Smooth, premium flavor, notable burn and neutral aftertaste. Price is irrelevant as you'll drop only a few bucks more for the great flavor of this winter wheat beauty .

The Little Water of Life

Many nations of the world have a singular drink that they have come to be identified with and that has come to be identified with them. For Russians (and Poles, Belarusans, Finns and Ukrainians), it is vodka.

Vodka on the Zakuska Table
Vodka on the Zakuska Table

Vodka is an essential part of the Russian zakuska table. When a liberal amount of the potent stuff is supplied to guests, the meal not only will be off to a fast start, but to a rollicking one as well.
